On March 13, former Morning Musume member Ogawa Makoto (27) announced through the official site and her blog that she would leave her agency at the end of this month and retire from the entertainment industry.

Ogawa wrote, "I decided to leave the showbiz world where I have been in since I was 13, after March 31, 2015.

She continued, "I feel sorry to make this sudden announcement for you guys who have supported me, but this is the decision I came up with that I've been considering the past couple of years. Now that I'm 27, and getting close to 30, I would like to conclude my path up to here once, and start as just a woman, Ogawa Makoto, toward a new path from zero.

Though nothing has been decided after April, I am willing to challenge on many different things while using all the precious experience I have gained up until now. If I ever come back to the entertainment industry someday, please support me again.

It is the treasure in my life that I was able to encounter many people during the past 14 years, and received so much happiness. I am very grateful for your support and to people who guided me. Thank you very much, and I would be happy if you continue to cheer for Ogawa Makoto who will be making a new start."

Ogawa joined Morning Musume back in 2001 as a 5th generation member, when she was 13, and graduated from the group in 2006.
